Kalu: I won’t lose sleep over Simataa, Kamanga new association

Kalusha Bwalya has hit out at critics who want him to step down as president of the Football Association of Zambia.
The Zambian legend survived an attempt to unseat him on Saturday at the association’s annual general meeting.
Bwalya remains at the helm after a no-confidence motion in Bwalya’s executive committee failed to materialise.
His detractors say they are now weighing up the pros and cons of forming a a breakaway league.
But Bwalya told BBC Sport on Monday that he will not be losing any sleep over threats of a breakaway league.
“It’s unfortunate but this is Africa, we can’t please everybody,” he said.
He added: “The people of Zambia are tired of talking about the same thing over and over again; people should give us the chance to finish our mandate.
“Football in Zambia has never been more vibrant but we have a few people who have consistently gone against the rules.
“These people will always be against anything we do but we’re not worried because we as the football association know what we’re doing.”
Bwalya said he could not understand why his enemies are so eager to get rid of him when the next FAZ election is only seven months away.
“Considering the elective year is 2012, the club which wanted to table the motion decided it was better to wait, which we thought was the best way forward.
“We have worked very well but it’s unfortunate that another picture is painted for the outside world.”
He said the problem in Zambian football is rooted in officials “who do not stick to the constitution and statutes of the football association”
